Mrs Sidhu Investigates Season 2 (Acorn TV Original) – New Series Premieres Monday, September 18
Adapted from the popular BBC 4 radio series, Mrs Sidhu Investigates follows Mrs. Sidhu (Meera Syal, The Kumars at No. 42, Yesterday, Anita and Me), a high-end caterer with a taste for crime who solves murders and other ghastly crimes amongst the affluent residents of Berkshire. A lifetime of being an “Indian Aunty,” invisible to the elite, has sharpened her skills as an investigator: an instinct for truth, a warmth with people and a persistent sense of nosiness.

Recently widowed, Mrs. Sidhu juggles her new catering business with wrangling her wayward son, Tez (Gurjeet Singh, Ackley Bridge), all while serving up justice to those who believe they are above the law. Her forays into crime see her form an unofficial partnership with the world-weary DCI Burton (Craig Parkinson, Line of Duty, Grace), who reluctantly accepts that together, they’re an unbeatable crime fighting duo, much to the bemusement of his partner, DS Mint (Naana Agyei-Ampadu, Death in Paradise).
